PSC 1410 prints the test page every time I turn it on.
This started after replacing the color cartridge. Turning the printer off and disconnecting the USB does not help. I followed the instructions to copy the page when it was first printed, like I usually do. Did I press the wrong button? The picture in the instructions is not clear about which button.

This is an aligment page.When printer print the page just follow the instruction on page put it on the scanner glass and finish the aligment.If your color or/and black cartridge is empty or clogged the aligment is not compete and printer will print this page every time when you turning it on.If your case is that just replace the cartridge and finish the aligment.
Ok firstly double check that the cartridge is in there properly (you should have heard a click when you pushed it in). Once you've done this go to your printer settings in your control panel and print a test page. If the test page is total blue then take the ink cartridge back to the shop and get them to replace it (for free).
Test pages are often printed by holding down one of the buttons on the printer. Make sure that none of the buttons are stuck. Look up in your printer manual which button is for test print and make sure it isn't stuck.
Buy a Brother 2100 All in one for 169 or less then goto 123 inkjet and get color cartridges for only 4.50 each (and the large ones too not dinky cartridges) plus for the price of a new printer you get the ink in it which would cost you the price of ink anyway for the HP so think as it as a free printer
123inkjet.com - for 50 dollars I got 3 black 2 majenta 2 yellow and 2 blue and they were sent to me through general mail us to canada so no duties but did take 4 weeks or more
It is the problem related "Alignment of cartridge"
your printer is working properly, I am suggesting a method, with the help of this method you will never get test page until you lift out your cartridge from your printer.
When next time printer print a test page, take it and put it into the scanner, remember the printing area should be the side of mirror and the printer prints on the above side of the paper should be left side of the scanner. And press scan button, you will see the green light will be blink and a voice of scanner you will hear. After 30 seconds light will stop blinking,
Next time when you will turn on your printer, it will not print test page.
What is not working? The printer or the cartridge? If it's the cartridge, try this. fold a paper towel in 4ths, dampen it and place on a flat surface. Blot the cartridge several times on the towel. You should get blots of black with the black cart. and three colors with the color or photo cart. If not... replace. If the printer carriage just won't move and you're shure you have power.. time for a new printer.
Could be a number of things. I would try looking in printer settings first. Click on your printer, go to properties and check all settings, it may be set to do this or similar. If no go, try uninstalling and reinstalling it, or just turning it off and unplugging, replugging and turn on again can often reset irregulariites. Also try resetting default printer settings too.
